Come along into the sea!
For anyone curious about the life in the sea.
Did you know that the blue whale is the biggest animal that has ever existed? That it is even bigger than the biggest dinosaurs? And that long ago, the whales had four legs and lived on land? The blue whale is not only the biggest and strongest animal species in the sea, it also lives a strange and enigmatic life. It crosses the world’s ocean in search of huge swarms of krill, small crustaceans that blaze red in daylight and flash blue in the dark. The blue whale has a dramatic history: in the last century it was close to be exterminated.
